Question 98 500sl convt. top

My top works fine just @ end of cycle when putting top up I have to help soft top latch in rear by having someone pust down slightly on either side. What is wrong do I need an adjustment? Please help!

there is a latch problem most of the time front latches or a microswitch problem or a interinal fluid leak in one of the latches you need to get the codes read with a scan toll to direct you to a latch to test

If the top has been in the stowed position for a long time, sometimes just putting the top up (and latched down) for a day or two will work wonders for this problem. It kind of stretches the material into the proper shape.
